Interview with Winfried Banzer from Germany's EUPAP team
In Spring, we interviewed Winfried Banzer, Professor of Sports Medicine at Goethe University and the main leader of the German EUPAP team, about their latest activities and achievements in implementing the Swedish PAP method in the region. We also asked him about the main challenges and difficulties they have when implementing those activities during the pandemic.
In the interview, the professor talks about their activities such as their work in setting up a prescriber network in and around Frankfurt, and providing them (doctors) with the scientific literature and material they need for their daily work. They also regularly communicate with their existing contacts in organized sports, academic and other professional groups as well as do training courses for students of Physiotherapy and Sport Science. It will help prepare competent professionals and ensure continuity of PAP method. Also, the team actively participated in organizing the Sports, Medicine and Health Summit 2021, where Winfried gave a speech on physical activity on prescription.
